This is our family room.
This is the place where everyone gathers. We’ve had a Miss America party here complete with a runway and prizes. We’ve hosted a football watching party the year the Cowboys went to the playoffs. We’ve played games and watched the Survivor finale and sung songs and caroled and played the guitar and eaten piles of macaroni and cheese and broccoli.
It’s farmhouse and neutral and khaki and gray and ready at any minute for a party.
But here’s the thing.
As amazing as this room is?
It had a challenge.
It needed extra seating.
We had two couches and two chairs and ottomans for the floor and a coffee table that people scattered pillows around and a table in the back with some kind of uncomfortable chairs.
People would pull the chairs into the room and sit for a while and kind of squirm around and then?
They’d end up just sitting on the floor.
So when Rooms To Go contacted me about working with them, I knew EXACTLY what I needed.
I was so excited to work with them. I’ve been shopping at Rooms To Go for years.
They have amazing prices and a great selection and I like seeing what furniture looks like when I’m making a big purchase. When our sons were little and we lived in a house with two bedrooms and not a lot of space, I went shopping there for bunk beds. I found the perfect set of white bunk beds that looked just like the high-end bunk beds from the catalog. They had drawers underneath them and they were super sturdy and we used them for years and eventually passed them down to another family who was just as excited to get them as we were.
This is our local Rooms To Go store.
Doesn’t it look like you could shop for days and have food shipped in because you never want to leave.
A couple of weeks ago, I pulled up to the parking lot and walked inside.
I explained my entire life history to the most helpful salesman and explained about the parties and the caroling and the macaroni and cheese and explained to him that I needed extra seating for all the fun events I had planned for the year.
And all the events I had yet to plan.
We walked around the store and found these chairs. I liked them. I liked the pattern. I liked the size and they were super comfortable.
And just as I was about to tell him they would work perfectly.
I saw these.
These beautiful, wonderful, farmhouse chairs. The chair is the Westover Hills Brown Side Chair from the Cindy Crawford Home collection. You can find them by clicking here and searching at the top of the website.
I know they look like they are dining chairs. But truly? They are the perfect size to work as dining chairs or arm chairs….or…..or….
…you guessed it.
I bought FOUR.
Right there on the spot I ordered four of these amazing, incredible, perfect extra seating chairs.
They are the perfect size and not too heavy and super comfortable.
They come in this heavy weave fabric that has dimension and color to it.
The back of the seat and top of the seat are padded and there are silver nailheads that line the chair.
Perfect for football games and the Survivor finale.
There are also nail heads on the bottom of the seat as well.
Here’s a close up of the legs.
They are a classic style and come in a dark wood.
Four of these chairs fit perfectly around our game table in the back of room.
I still have the striped chairs that go here, but I pulled these into the space so you could see how well they worked on this side of the family room.
Thanks to all the extra seating 12 people can now sit comfortably in this space.
I bought these four chairs on a Wednesday and they were delivered on Friday.
The delivery team called me in advance to let me know the delivery window and called me again when the team was 30 minutes away.
And then? After they were delivered?
Rooms To Go called me to ask me how my experience went.
Here’s a close up of the chairs at the back of the space around the round game table.
And here’s a close-up of the chairs in the front part of the room as extra seating.
I’m so happy.
Now my family room is ready to party.
And football watch.
And serve macaroni and cheese.
And welcome family and friends.
And make sure that everyone….
….has a seat at the table.
PS I changed something else about the room. Can you figure out what it is?
PPS I was at my brother’s house last night and he had the most amazing new sectional in his family room. I asked him where he got it and guess what he said?
Rooms To Go.
Of course he did. 🙂
